Can someone help me to go deeper or explain what exactly all the code is doing?
I can answer these three problem with the help of hint, but actually I can’t understand what’s happening and the main idea in this section

thanks in advance


The final case to fix is for the favoriteRecipes/removeRecipe action type. This action will be dispatched with a payload whose value is the recipe object to be removed from the state.favoriteRecipes array.

For this question the solution was:

case 'favoriteRecipes/removeRecipe': return {...state, favoriteRecipes: state.favoriteRecipes.filter(element => element.id !== action.payload.id) } default: return state;

but where is element coming from??? I don’t see this defined anywhere else.
